While we were in Colorado we went to the Zapata Ranch to see bison.
Now we were not promised that we would see bison, but the hope was that we would.
At first a handful, then scores and then... Well I stopped counting when I reached 500.
The Zapata Ranch has a herd of 2500 bison, give or take a few. We saw more than one fifth of all their majestic animals.
And, yes, we were really this close to them.
In the background you can see the Sangre de Christo Mountains and the Great Sand Dunes.
What a thrill!
